The rest of the bag of dahlias

 Yesterday I shared a couple of orange dahlias and today I have a couple of black dahlias. I'll bet nature doesn't even produce orange or black dahlias, but Stampin' Up! let's us make them whatever color we want!

The first one demonstrates the popular polaroid technique where the featured image is square and matted onto a white rectangle with a small sentiment at the bottom. We used a silver marker around the edge of the square to highlight the dahlia square. The pen was available in the holiday catalog and then on the clearance rack. I love to use it inside a black card like this one. I hope you got yours when they were available because I don't think we sell them anymore.

There is also a tiny flag of red glimmer paper to add a bit of bling and color, coming right off the sentiment, if you look close. You could use a bit of ribbon or bright DSP if you didn't have red sparkly paper, but this works wonderfully to brighten the card!

The second card is also black and white with a bit of red glimmer, layering two identical images of the Regarding Dahlia flower and a sentiment from the same stamp set.

This class was designed to demonstrate how one stamp set and limited supplies could produce beautiful and very trendy or classic cards and quite a variety of cards without having to own a lot of crafting supplies.

Happy stamping!
